In this thread, I would like to explore the viability of a nonreligious/cultural ideological perspective as Buddhist Communism.
Theoretical imperatives may be stated from various grounds.
I am from India, working in the academic discipline of philosophy, and having a strong concern towards issues related to individual freedom that goes non-antagonising to social justice questions in any form.
To this direction, I feel there is a rich source of ideological wealth within the vast spectrum of Buddhist traditions (practices and insights) that have been available across the world. Since the popularity of Buddhism goes as one of the world religions, its nonreligious/cultural dimensions would be providing a greater springboard. I have already made some attempts to trace those nonreligious/cultural manifestations.

I look forward to having a conversation with likeminded persons.
